When a new Android Operating System update is announced by Google there are a few steps that take place before it becomes ready for your device.  The manufacturer receives the update and customises the software for the device and mobile carriers in each country.  Once this is completed they’ll send the update to the carriers for testing.

 

For more info on this process check out our page Android Operating System Updates

 

The below table provides info on the latest Android updates we’ve received for testing and approval as of 01/07/2015.  If no info is listed, it means we haven't received the build or any new details from the manufacturer.

 

When a version is marked as completed it means testing has been finished on our end and approved.  Each manufacturer has a process for releasing updates to devices & once we approve the update, it’s sent back to the manufacturer to be released through their standard update processes. Generally, updates are rolled out progressively, where it’s made available for a small number of users (5% for example) initially. If no unforeseen problems pop up, it’ll be gradually made available to more & more users over a period of a couple of weeks.

Yeah not many people check these forums or just update the old ones since new ones are made everytime 1 phone gets info.

 

Anyways optus, do you know how long it takes for Sony to receive the approved update is it just "emailed" to them?

I haven't seen any sign of the update surely someone should get it if it's released to small amounts first.

 

Also I got my Sony Z1 from Virgin mobile but it has optus firmware and boot up does this mean optus is handling the android updates and ota updates or Virgin?

Hey @InsaneGenius I've been advised the timeframe can be up to 2 weeks for Sony to rollout the update once we've completed testing.

 

@Lami No word on this yet, once there's any info it'll be provided in these updates 😉
